Dell E6400/6500 research thread

Recommended Posts

Where would I find this for my machine? Is it in the BIOS?

 

I tried booting up my 6510 using a drive from another system and it looked like it was on it's way to boot and then gave me a KP saying something to effect "Mac version or machine not defined/configured (something like that)... Don't have machine with me to give the exact error, but thought it might have something to do with the above.

You need real mac serial number.

Here are some serial numbers from MacbookPro5,5

 

C0927BJ366D

C0927C6T66D

C0925U5G66D

 

I guess I'll edit the post to save users from this.

Yes you have the same configuration as me (minus the Intel wifi) so yes it will work. Just remember to replace wifi with dell wireless 1510 or other compatible one and You are good to go.

My destination is also installing hackingtosh lion 10.7.x in my Dell E6500 (4GB, intel P9500 & wifi5300 & 82567LM & ICH9 chipset, nvidia quadro NVS160M, IDT audio)on my one hdd 120GB only (I also have other 2 hdd for Win7/XP/Debian6.04/FreeBSD9/PCBSD9) I really have no Mac air or Macbook.

 

I wonder to follow the top guideline to "http://www.osxlatitude.com/lion/" should be on a real mac device or I can do it in my Virtualbox in WinXP/PCBSD to make the USB pen for boot Dell to install hack MacOSX ?

 

I have done in Virtualbox for lion 10.7.0 success, how ever, it is real slow.

 

I found E6500 is easy to change the SATA hdd inside because it is a box fixed.

 

Or all of you can guide me how to place in sequence to change without bootpack-D830-nvidia easily.

 

I am a real new freshman.

So far thanks to Mariusz and this thread I have my E6500 mostly working. For hardwire lan I had to use the older 32 bit version but no wireless. I am going to start researching the GMA4500 graphics card to see what I can tweak to try and make it work. If not basic graphics seem to do ok. I also have an e6510 to play with after this, but thats a whole new thread!

Hello,

 

Would you be willing to give me a little help?

 

I have a E6500 nVidia.

 

I want to get the latest Lion (10.7.2 at this point)

 

Quite some time ago - before these easy walk-throughs existed, I got 10.6.6 running great.

 

Now, I leaped the hurdles and got 10.6.8 running.

 

But for the life of me I cannot get any Lion.

 

Please, what process did you use for installing Lion?

 

I have tried xfail, unifail, and myhack but no luck. only xfail started the install process then on reboot got a kp. the other will not even boot the install.

 

How do you install Lion?

 

Thank you very much for you time.

1. Choose whatever method for preparing USB Lion install media (I favor myHack)

2. Add content of a boot pack to the install media

3. boot and install :)

 

Here is my boot pack for your Lion install USB pen: bootpack-e6X00.zip
